He didn't get as big a raise as his brother, apparently.
Husker news on the Buff Board.............I love it!
Shows you how bad things have become around here....do you think those things to your left are real?
huskers on a buff board making fun of buffs talking about huskers... I love it!
The crazy thing is Carl Pelini turned down a $600,000 DC position from Tennessee. I guess he doesn't want to leave for anything less than a head coaching gig . . . maybe? I don't think I'd turn down that kind of money.
You have a link? I missed that news.
We all know why Carl didn't leave :lol:
Found this on Shaggybevo.com.
Carl is nothing w/o his brother. This makes it obvious.
Sure. Here you go . . .
"Osborne said Carl Pelini chose to stay despite being offered more than double his Husker salary to go to Tennessee."
Maybe so. I know Bob Stoops thinks highly of him. I think he'll be a successful coach elsewhere eventually.
Excuse me if I don't believe a word that comes out of Dr Tom's mouth.
He's got the fear. Good luck with that.
I don't know if this is official enough for you . . . the Lincoln Journal Star tried to get a direct quote from Carl but he wouldn't talk. It does add a little more information.
Hmmm. Not sure why Carl would turn that down. A NFL DC position on a decent team. I'm not sure how good the Titans D is, but I'm really curious why Carl would turn that opportunity down. I'm sure his aspiration is to become a HC. The Pelini boys are Buckeyes correct?
The DC position was with the University of Tennessee, not the Titans.
And yes, you are correct. I believe they both attended tOSU. Bo did for sure . . . I think Carl did as well.
My bad. I thought it was the Titans.
I think Carl made the right choice to stay in Lincoln. Things are looking up for the fuskers. More so than the Vols imo.
Maybe so . . . but the extra $300,000 would have to be tempting. Kudos to him, I guess, for realizing it's not all about money.
I'm sure he's happy with his "situation" in kNebraska.
. . . so I understand. Talk about dating WAYYYY outside of his league. She's not a supermodel by any means . . . but she probably looks like one next to Carl.
I knew the Huskers were rockstars in kNebraska. This just confirms it. :lol:
But I thought Carl was getting fired?
Just further illustrates that CU is going to have a commitment at some point to pay coaches big money if we want to get back to winning consistently.
BTW, no can convince me Shawn Watson is worth 380K a year.
Nope. Quite the opposite. Carl got an 80% raise.
You can't convince me of that either. I want him gone.
If hot Carl is half the coach his brother is, then it's money well spent. Bo is one hell of a coach.
He's worth 380K a year or more in my book, conditioned on the terms of employment being somewher other than CU....:lol:
I think he probably is a really good coach as well. I hope his temper doesn't get him in hot water, though. I think/hope he will mature a little bit without losing his passion.
Your'e 100% right - 4 years ago we had a chance to get him, but we got sucked in by a song and dance from Talkins. Oh no Pelini is to rough around the edges, not a good face man, doesn't have the media savy.
